in the streets. in libya, an investigation underway on the deadly assault on a u.s. post in benghazi. this was the scene yesterday after what is now being called a coordinated attack that ended with four americans dead, including one of our most valued ambassadors, chris stevens. in yemen hundreds of protesters stormed the u.s. embassy grounds chanting "death to america," a phrase we have heard in so many places over the past 48 hours. while in iraq demonstrators trampling on the stars and stripes, setting our flag on fire and showting anti-american and anti-israeli chants. in just a few minutes we will speak with one of the foremost authorities on the middle east when dr. henry kissinger joins us life with his take on what -- live with his take on what we are seeing right now on this earth. but first we go to leland vittert who has just arrived in cairo. his photographer is not there yet, so he is coming with us via laptop, and the situation is precarious. leland? >> reporter: well, so long as the laptop the balcony, we're going to be okay, megyn. we're about 18 stories up, and you

of the american am basses door and three others after protesters stormed the embassy in benghazi. not clear exactly how the ambassador died, although officials believe it is likely his killers were an organized group who planned the attack. protesters are out again in egy egypt. the president chose his words carefully. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally of the united states? >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. they were democratically elected. i think that we will have to see how they respond to this incident, how they respond to, for example, maintaining the peace treaty with israel. >> i want to bring in nick kristof and look at the cover this week. the agents of outrage. we'll talk about that, as well. couldn't be happier to have the two of you and your expertise in this area. i want to start with what happened in libya and give us your perspective. these assailants were heavily armed. it they seemed to be organized. does it seem to you perhaps to have b
of the u.s. consulate in the city of benghazi. it happened after hundreds of people converged on the consulate to protest a little- known internet film that ridicules islam. the film was produced in the united states. it was just a year ago that the u.s. helped overthrow libya's dictator moammar qaddafi and christopher stevens was one of the americans on the ground then helping the rebels to victory. we have a team of correspondents we have a team of correspondents on this story and we will go first to david martin who's been talking to his sources at the pentagon. david? >> reporter: good evening, scott. u.s. officials say this was not an out-of-control demonstration, but a well-executed attack by a well-armed band of extremist. officials suspect the attackers where either linked to or sympathized with al qaeda and that they took advantage of a demonstration against that anti- muslim film to launch their assault on the anniversary of 9/11. american ambassador chris stevens and information manager sean smith were in the main building when the attack, which turned into a four-h
. the powder keg is still conserving its powder, it seems. ironical ironically, benghazi remained pretty calm, perhaps the libyan government's quick crack down on perpetrators, a number have been arrested already. there's a man hunt going on if you believe what you hear from the libyan government. that's perhaps had an affect on tamping down the tension in benghazi. but the u.s. government's taking no chances. all u.s. diplomatic personnel evacuated to tripoli and only emergency staff being kept on at the embassy in the capital. as you mentioned in cairo, it's been another -- on the third day of protests -- another active day but not a lot of death -- no deaths spo-to-speak of. not too many people have been injured. so perhaps a second degree level of violence. overnight dramatic scenes near the u.s. embassy, which is about 500 yards behind me down the road next to the mosque, riot police charging forward, firing tear gas, trying in vain to disperse a crowd. this cat and mouse stand-off went on all day today. expecting to see it again later on. now the biggest concern, as you alluded to, is t
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, that left the u.s. ambassador and three other americans dead. first ambassador murdered on the job in a generation. some of this is coming from an anti-islamic film made here in the u.s. and it appears there is violence aimed across the country in a big region. we begin tonight with our chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, who is back, where by the way they're reporting 200 injuries today. richard, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian, clashes are still continuing here, even at this late hour near the u.s. embassy, and they were not the only ones in this region. this mess in the middle east is not over yet. the protesters in yemen set out to destroy the american embassy, to punish onto insult against islam. protesters climbed the perimeter fence, undeterred by the yemen security forces who tried to keep them back, wi water tanks. the crowds pushed forward, and managed to get inside the embassy parking lot. smashing windows, torching vehicles, using a forklift to do even more damage. this time, the u.s. embassy was prepared, sta
particularly in libya and egypt. he wrote what's happen inning cairo and benghazi is a case of political opportunism by salafist islamic extrooemists who are unhappy with the success that more moderate islamist and secular in egypt and libya have had in building political support. do you agree with that statement? >> absolutely. there's a lot of intraislamic competition like the muslim brotherhood trying to take leadership in the arab world and coming to the political rise in egypt and spreading. and also the more extremely actors who also have more space to operate in the post-arab spring world. there are other broader, strategic exploitations taking place in response to this video. egypt is a really good case study for that. just looking at how many different players are nervous about the transformation with egypt with much of the old guard retiring and now the islamists asserts themselves. you have christians very nervous about that. you have elements of the military not happy with the situation. here lies an opportunity to try to make the muslim brotherhood-led government appear more
if the deadly attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi was a planned terror strike or a spontaneous backlash from the anti-islamic video posted on youtube. four americans were killed in the attack including 52-year-old ambassador chris stevens, widely regarded as one of the most popular and successful american envoys in the region. according to first reports from senior administration officials, the american consulate came under small-arms fire around 10:00 p.m. local time. a short time later, the outside walls of the lightly guarded compound were breached. gunmen began attacking the main building, setting it on fire. at this point three people remained inside the main consulate. ambassador stevens, another staff member named sean smith and a security officer. amid the chaos and heavy smoke, the three became separated. ambassador stevens was missing for 12 hours before his body was located on wednesday morning in a benghazi hospital. apparently transported there by libyan police. >> let's try to put this in perspective right now. a lot of people look at these images, if they're my a
.s. consulate in benghazi in june. i want to bring in our cnn national security analyst, peter bergen, who has reported extensively on al qaeda as well as interviewing sbeosama bin la back in '97. i talked to peter earlier and he explained how the u.s. first learned about this al qaeda group in libya. >> reporter: in 2007, the u.s. military recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. and when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was kind of an unexpected thing to find. and so historically, libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them? do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there is sort of umbrella group, according to the former libyan jihadist called ansar al sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this i

crowding around protesting the u.s. libyan officials announcing the benghazi attack, which killed christopher stevens and three other diplomats. saying that it is part of a two-part plan operation. with more on this, we have john bolton and k.t. mcfarland. welcome to everybody and thank you for coming on tonight. the dynamite panel for this topic. i want to start with those pictures in egypt that we saw just a moment ago. k.t. mcfarland, or as let's go to you. the market is a loss of life. egypt is the key because it is the largest middle east country and the one that everyone looks to and has the longest history. as goes egypt, so for the entire region go. the fact that the demonstrations that they have had has turned out to be a who's who of the hobbits. there is the head of al qaeda whose brother was there, the one that was the first man that tried to blow up the world trade center, his nephew was there. this is not a bunch of kids picking up rocks and throwing them at the american embassy. gerri: ambassador, where is the president and what is our response. i don't see a. >> it
libyan city in benghazi. most recent events happening on 9/11 and new reporting pointing to the fact these were planned, organized events, not a spontaneous demonstration against a video as placed on the interpret as originally thought. the death of the ambassador and three others spurring renewed calls to end the spigot that pours american tax dollars into the globe's most volatile regions. here's the numbers, your numbers, your tax dollars. number one, israel, $3.1 billion. afghanistan, $2.3 billion. pakistan, $2.1 billion. iraq, $1.7 billion e just a minute dlsh -- egypt $1.6. the obama administration just announced $1 billion in debt forgiveness for egypt, which is seeking a $5 billion imf loan coming from us too. you get the point. the money flows from us to them, and make no mistake, the countries ask for the money, take it with one hand and attack us with another. i don't think like some we should be isolationists. we can't hope to be safe within our border and turn our backs. we have to lead, but the checkbook is not the most effective way of doing that. that's what i think.
